HEDI FERJANI & SCOT THOMPSON The meaning of life @ Fine Art Gallery

The meaning of life

June 5th ‐ July 31st, 2009
Opening Reception: Friday June 5th, 6‐9PM

FINE ART GALLERY is proud to present “The Meaning of Life” an exhibition of works by New York based artists Hedi Ferjani & Scot Thompson, on view from June 5th through July 31st, 2009.
The exhibition draws a parallel between two extreme, yet, complimentary visions of existence:

On the one hand, Hedi Ferjani extols the superficial and barbaric nature of the human condition.

On the other hand, Scot Thompson exults the cycle of molecular transformations from dust to shape and vice versa.

Both address the transient nature of existence and remind us of Apollo’s assertion in T.S. Eliot’s seminal ‘The Waste Land’:

“I’ll show you fear in a handful of dust.”

The show will be recorded live and transmitted on the channel :

    What an amazing show!
    I bought a work by Hedi Ferjani (a grenade covered with glitter) for a very afordable price.
    If you didn't get a chance to attend the tremendous opening reception, my friend Emily Waldorf, who travelled from Los Angeles to be there, relates the evening on her blog (

    "Works included a grouping of three World War II masks spray painted with different shades of glitter, syringes, a tombstone labeled with the words “Barbie” in pink, a Damien Hirst inspired skull with butterflies, and a fascinating carved wood totem pole like sculpture that grounded the show at the center of the gallery. Despite horizontal rain showers outside, a fashionable downtown crowd of artists, collectors, and enthusiasts packed into the gallery creating a vibrant evening that should be deemed a grand succès."

    Many thanks to Mark Whelan for his discoveries with us.

    A wonderful exponent of the postulation that: "All that glitters is not gold." Really rather delightful despite the subcutaneous predilection for the macabre.
